The following is an update of the status of Post-Sandy recovery in the Village of Mamaroneck.  

Electricity Restoration efforts:

Everyone should be aware that electricity restoration efforts are continuing.  The village was informed this morning that we had no restoration crews operating in the Village of Mamaroneck, while there were still between 900 and 1,000 customer accounts without power.  At that point, the village contacted Con Edison’s Corporate Office, County Emergency Services, the County Executive’s Office, the Governor’s Office, the New York State Public Service Commission and Congresswoman Nita Lowey’s Office.  We also instituted a village-wide request for residents to contact Con Edison and contact the Public Service Commission. 

In response to our efforts, the village did receive a crew assigned back to the Village of Mamaroneck.  The crew assigned to us has been able to improve the situation and restored electricity to several hundred customers in the village.  At this time, we are informed that the number of Con Edison customer accounts without electricity dropped to close to 500 by the end of today, which is roughly six percent of the village remaining without power.  We are continuing to focus our efforts having electricity restored to all remaining outages in the village.

We recommend that the single most important thing at this point is if you have no electricity, all you should residents to call the Con Edison Customer Service hotline, at 1-800-752-6633 (1-800-75-CONED) at least once every day  if your electricity is still out.

Emergency:  Our state of emergency continues indefinitely.

Shelters:  The VFW Shelter is closing, but the Hampshire Country Club remains open on a limited basis.

Restoration and Repairs:

The village and higher levels of government, such as the New Yok State DEC, are expediting permits and authorizations for repairs to storm damaged structures and properties.  All village fees are waived, but permits are still required from the Building Department.  If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact the Mamaroneck Village Building Department at 914-777-7731.

Weather:

According to the National Weather Service (NWS), no significant weather events are expected over the next several days, except for a steady warming trend that is projected to reach the upper 60s this Monday, Nov. 12, 2012, the day Veteran’s Day is observed.

Thanks for the Mayor and his team or things would be even worse- this is ridiculous. Homes with children and old people, now 10 days without power. Some don't even have downed lines, just requireing switching or re-setting.
